MaggZ is a Naarm-based (Melbourne, ‘Australia’) queer Chinese movement artist, creative director and producer, trained in ballet and now specialised in waacking - a freestyle dance originated in 1970s LA from the Latinix and African American queer community, predominantly involving arm movements. Traversing amongst street dance battles, performances, installations, creative direction and producing, MaggZ’s practice centres aliveness, stillness, persistence and agency and aspires to honour the authentic self and living experience through transdisciplinary explorations in both physical and digital landscapes. MaggZ is appointed as Producer in Residence at Next Wave (Naarm, ‘Australia’), and producer / performance art consultant at Collide24 (Berlin, Germany). MaggZ’s recent achievements are - the recipient of the Young Creative Awards in 2020, nominated four times by the Green Room Awards, and the winner of Destructive Steps allstyle 2v2 dance battle in 2022.
